Provider of online consultations for lower back pain and sciatica, Edinburgh Osteopath Gavin Routledge explains why “no pain no gain” has nothing to do with recovering from LBP or sciatica.

  • You will prevent healing
  • You will sensitise your nervous system leading to more pain
  • It will lead to setbacks which are depressing
